TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello Followers! My name is Andee, and I have been a K-6th Speech-Language Pathologist for 18 years in a school setting. I recently joined the world of teletherapy, and it has nothing short of AMAZING! I began creating unique materials to engage my students online, and realized that my lessons could EASILY be used on an iPad, laptop or SMART Board for quick, portable and NO PRINT lessons for on-the-ground therapists. I often passed up amazing materials here on TPT because I didn't have the time to cut, glue, laminate, print and read directions. My lessons are meant to be downloaded, and USED. That day. That moment.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have always believed that the best way to improve learning and student engagement is to make therapy FUN! Games and colorful products bring whimsy and livelihood back into the therapy room. Engaging materials help foster rapport and build long-lasting connections with students. Children retain skills when learning is presented in a fun, stimulating way.
